I know this Victorian thorn vase has suffered an injury & is missing it's hanging basket, but I still think it's rather wonderful. It is made from three layers of cased glass - clear over blue, with a white interior. The vase is covered with rustic thorn pull outs & has an applied shell ribbed branch, which is now somewhat sadly truncated. It would have once held a hanging basket, & measures 24.5 cm tall, 4 cm across the fire polished top rim, & 7.5 cm across the base, which has a snapped pontil mark. A flea market find, & I believe it to be of English manufacture.
